Intact Care and Circumcision Info Pack

In order to make a fully informed decision, having easy access to valid, research-based information is key. Working hand in hand with clinicians who volunteer with Saving Our Sons, we deliver accurate prepuce ('foreskin'), intact care, and circumcision information to any expecting parent or clients of intact conscious practitioners. There are 10 options below for getting material to your expecting friends and family members.

The Full Info Pack

The full SOS info pack includes:  
  • 80 pages of articles and research. This material broaches a wide range of sub-categories within intact literature, and responds to all major myths regarding the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision today. 
  • Complimentary videos on DVD full of helpful, research-based information on the prepuce, its care, and the circumcision decision parents in the U.S. and Canada are allowed to make today.
  • A proper intact care card and sticker for use at a physician's office, daycare, nursery or with a babysitter. We are happy to send along additional intact care cards or stickers at your request. These are 2-sided, full color, glossy, and made with heavy card stock so they can be reused (or laminated and kept handy with your baby's diaper bag). 
  • A National Medical Organizations Statements on Circumcision chart that highlights positions on infant circumcision from a variety of respected groups around the world including those in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Finland, India and others. 
  • An Intact Celebrities oversized postcard that serves to highlight many of the well known men in U.S. culture who are happily intact for a lifetime (abolishing some of the myths about intact men being socially undesirable). 
  • A Keeping Future Sons Intact card especially for parents who may already have a son who was circumcised. This does not mean future sons cannot remain intact. Many families are raising both circumcised and intact sons, and we hope to support parents in this change of heart. 
  • A "Did You Know?" card full of quick facts about the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision in the U.S. and Canada. 
  • An "Expecting a Boy?" postcard that contains quick go-to resources on the front; circumcision and intact care points on the back.
  • A "Trust His Body" postcard that serves as an encouragement to parents of the perfection with which their son arrives. The back has the functions of the foreskin and intact care information.
  • An "Intact vs. Circumcised Outcome Statistics" postcard that highlights the difference between an intact and circumcised newborn baby; shows a photo of what a circumcised infant looks like both from Plastibell and Gomco clamp, and lists statistics and risk factors both for keeping babies intact, and circumcising.
  • An "Intact vs. Circumcised Adult" postcard that specifies the way the glans must change from being an internal to external organ when circumcision is carried out. This card is also includes restoration information for men who may want to look further into this option. 
  • A "Lost/Found" card that has quick-facts on the functions of the foreskin on one side (things that are lost to circumcision) and the things found with restoration on the back. This card is especially for fathers who may feel their son should 'match' them.
  • A "Restoration" card that has go-to resources for men who may have been circumcised at birth, as well as the large variety of restoration devices available to men today. 
  • A "Breastfeeding/Circumcision" info card that points out the many ways that circumcision can hamper a successful breastfeeding relationship. 
  • A "Congratulations!" card with a wide variety of discussion groups on various topics parents may be interested in (everything from pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, gentle discipline, raising girls or boys, etc.). 
  • An "Elephant in the Hospital" sticker. Dr. McAllister's entire Georgetown University lecture is included on the DVD with this pack; the sticker is added as an extra encouragement to spark interest and move parents to check things out. 
  • [Optional] Added faith-based information that is relevant to families who are Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Mormon, or Catholic. Please include a note when ordering or email for faith-based items to be added. 
  • [Optional] An "HIV/AIDS and Circumcision" card stressing facts that relate to the 2006 HIV trials in Africa, and the myths that have surfaced from those trials in U.S. media. 
  • [Optional] "Did You Know" and Intact Care cards in Spanish
  • Calmoseptine samples: This ointment is the top recommended for use on developing skin. It does not interfere with a baby's natural pH or healthy (protective) microflora, and is perfect for use on babies during diaper days, when irritation or redness is common. It is the most recommended cream by pediatricians volunteering their time with Saving Our Sons, and is the cream we use when leading intact care classes. Calmoseptine can be purchased at most pharmacies around the world, or on Amazon
  • Contact information for Saving Our Sons and The INTACT Network volunteers, and follow-up with families who may have additional questions, or wish to talk with an intact friendly physician, educator, or other parents in their local area.
Each of the items in the SOS info pack has been specially selected by a board of individuals who have served in the professional fields of pediatrics, human sexuality, development, birth and education over the past 35 years. Our pack serves to empower parents in making a fully informed decision for their son before birth, and equipping parents with necessary resources for proper intact care after birth. The SOS info pack is perfect to share with friends, family and parents (or parents-to-be), as well as for birth and baby educators, midwives, doulas, and medical professionals to lend to expecting clients.

No profit is made on the info pack. $12.50 goes toward printing, materials publication, and supplies; $6.85 toward Priority shipping (U.S.), $9 (Canada), $12 to other international locations by weight. If you donate more than $19 toward the full info pack, the remainder will go to help other families.

Expecting? Pack

The Expecting? combo packet of informational items is significantly smaller than the full circumcision info pack (no DVDs or full articles), but is perfect for sending to any and all expecting friends/family. Materials are professionally made and serve to plant seeds of information on each of the following topics: circumcision, intact care, breastfeeding, babywearing and healthy baby sleep (i.e. no 'cry it out'). These items are mailed directly from Peaceful Parenting and include a thorough amount of material on circumcision and intact care, while at the same time covering other parenting topics that will impact a baby's life. 'Keeping future sons intact' themed info is included to ensure those who may already have circumcised boys find they have community and can be empowered to make a different decision the next time around. The Expecting? pack can be mailed anonymously - simply include an individual's name and address for shipping, or email with this information. Indicate if you would like additional Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Mormon or Catholic items added to the pack.

Church Blessing Pack
The Church Blessing Pack was created to have items for expecting, new, and nursing mothers in Christian churches. These items are designed to steer people back to intact information, in a way that is welcomed by most churches. The nursing items can be left in your church nursing room, the calmoseptine samples and 'Congratulations' cards can be left by changing tables. Some churches have business card sharing areas for congregation members, that the 'Congratulations' cards are perfect for. The Whole Christian cards and stickers may or may not fit with your church, depending on size and how welcoming it is of information. Some members may be able to plant things anonymously, while others would be known, or need to get permission to share. If these do not work with your church, 'carding' with them at a local Christian bookstore, the Christian books section at Barnes & Noble, or at Target is another great idea.

Church Blessing Pack ($6) includes:
• 10 Lanolin samples
• 10 coupons for $1 off Lansinoh
• 5 Latch on cards
• 15 Congratulations cards
• 5 Whole Christian cards
• 10 Whole Christian stickers
• 8 Calmoseptine packets (good for 2-3 diaper changes each) with stickers
• 2 extra postcards (to give to an expecting friend, or post around town)
Purchase ($6 per pack)

Church Blessing Mini ($4) includes: 
• 5 Lanolin samples
• 5 coupons for $1 off Lansinoh
• 4 Calmoseptine packets (good for 2-3 diaper changes each) with stickers
• 15 Congratulations cards
• 2 extra postcards (to give to an expecting friend, or post around town)
Purchase ($4 per pack)

Hospital Stay Pack
The Hospital Stay Packet includes an assortment of intact care materials - stickers, postcards, and info cards - to put in your baby's chart, have on his bassinet, his wipes container, diaper tabs, or include in your paperwork. Items may also be laminated (paper hole punch the top) to hang as a placard. This packet also includes a few items for awareness raising or seed-planting in the hospital (should you encounter anyone who questions your decision to keep your baby intact; or to drop in the restroom or waiting room for another future parent before you leave). The Hospital Stay Packet does not come with a "Do Not Circumcise / Do Not Retract" baby band, unless you choose this option. These soft/stretchy baby bands can be ordered separately as well, and each one arrives with a small number of cards and stickers as well.
$4 per Hospital Stay Pack 

$8 per Hospital Stay Pack + Baby Band

Email or Facebook Message
Information is almost always best received by professional materials in-hands. This sparks further curiosity in a way that leads people to investigate more deeply. The next best thing if you cannot get materials into someone's hands is to email or message them yourself with 1-2 quality links that lead to more information. The resource page at SOS is an effective starting point that has saved many babies: It is also the landing page if you only share the SOS website ( If you're unable or do not wish to email or message on Facebook yourself, email and we will respectfully message your friend, anonymous of who requested.

We send one copy of the Expecting a Boy? postcard via email (pictured above), an intact care/functions of the foreskin postcard, as well as 1-2 quality links that will lead the reader to further information, and are specific to that individual's family/faith/location. Saving Our Sons messages are professional, courteous, and we will get information to your friend/family member and answer any corresponding questions. We will not pester, harass or otherwise bombard your friend. 

Please include the following information when requesting that items be emailed/messaged: 
  • Name
  • Email or Facebook URL
  • Faith-based information (is this person Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, Mormon, etc.?)
  • Past child information (does this person already have a son who was circumcised?)
  • State or country that this individual lives in (so that we can connect them with a local leader/group for further dialog and connection if they wish) 

For Mom
Send a little love to the baby-saving mom in your life. For a donation of any amount (to cover shipping) we will send your recipient momma a high quality 5x7 magnet that reads, "Thank you, Mom, for saving babies." It is a special little reminder, fitting for the front of her refrigerator door, that her #i2 work does not go unnoticed. Choose between the "Baby Feet" or "Baby Legs" magnet (or both); and include the "Zen" or "Orchids" postcard if you'd like to give a donation in her honor. Each postcard has quick intact facts and stats on back, with a long list of websites for connecting. We will add in a small variety of advocacy materials with your magnet (stickers, pens, cards, bracelets, etc.) for donations over $10. Please include a note with your recipient's name, address, and choice of magnet and postcard, or email this information to
